Accounts in the first two books, one by patrol commander Steven Mitchell (writing under the pseudonym Andy McNab), Bravo Two Zero (1993) the other by Colin Armstrong, writing under the pseudonym Chris Ryan The One That Got Away (1995) as well as those by the SAS's RSM at the time of the patrol, Peter Ratcliffe (Eye of the Storm, 2000), did not always correspond, leading to accusations from the media of lying. The investigative book The Real Bravo Two Zero (2002) by Michael Asher followed the patrol route and interviewed witnesses. Finally half the patrol was captured and endured weeks of torture and interrogation at the hands of the Iraqi secret police in Baghdad.The story of Bravo Two Zero - the patrol's call sign and the title of this terrific British television movie - puts most Hollywood movies to shame. In the late afternoon of 24 January, the patrol was stumbled upon by a herd of sheep and a young shepherd. ''The New Statesman'', 26 Nov 2001".

After Ciudad Rodrigo, Teresa tells Sharpe that they have a baby daughter. That was McNab's experience, and Bravo Two Zero puts it on screen.What the film does not seek to do is present McNab and his patrol as trigger-happy killing machines. p.179. – Submitted by Frances H (2 years ago) Andy: Looks like TV to me. Understandably McNab wanted to glorify the mission and bend the truth to the point it was laughable. He makes mistakes. In the end, this made for TV version of McNab's work may just spark an interest in the patrol and make you want to find out what actually happened, which is not that bad.
